This is your FORMAL INVITATION to tonight's Bedouin Beats presentation...
Grab some snacks, find a comfy spot, and fasten your seatbelts. Prepare your mind for this unique and innovative show. As you'll see, all performances are pre-recorded but no less exciting and will showcase the obvious hard work each instructor and student has put into them as well as include some wonderful pieces by guests from around the province! We'll "open the doors" at 6:45pm (with a countdown) and the show will start at 7:00pm (All times are Mountain Standard). The show will be under 1.5 hours in length. There will be a 10-minute intermission in the middle to give you a moment to stretch your legs and re-load on nibblies.
This show IS free to watch, however, if you enjoy what you're seeing, please consider donating any amount as a form of entry fee via PayPal or etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org

As we continue to navigate through the pandemic restrictions, we are grateful to present all the hard work the students and instructors have put in for this Winter session. With our new online world, our students have braved the new platform of Zoom classes, interacting with their instructors and fellow-students virtually. It’s been a learning experiment and they have taken it head on. With the end of term, we’ve asked each of our students to record their performance and send to us to share with YOU! Also, expect to see several guest performances. This show, while not live like all our in-person shows beforehand, is still an exciting production and experiment that we can’t wait to embark upon with you. We hope you’ll consider joining us as we continue our METAMORPHOSIS.
Bedouin Beats has been a proud and prominent fixture in the local Bellydance community since 2008. It has also been an honoured member of the Alberta Avenue neighbourhood for nearly as long.
Over the past few years, during the economic decline, the studio has struggled to keep afloat but has always done what it can to keep its doors open. This would not have been possible without the constant support of the community, to whom I am forever grateful. Unfortunately, with the current pandemic and its effects on small businesses such as mine, I have had to make some serious decisions. As a result of the hard drop in income, today I had to make the call to my landlords to let them know I will be unable to renew my lease of the studio space beyond June. This was not something I came to lightly. This space at 11805 94 St. has been our home for so long, it’s going to be hard to leave. Our silver studio and our gold studio have seen the transformation of so many talented, beautiful, and courageous dancers.
These dancers are inspiring us, despite the loss of our familiar space, to venture out into unfamiliar territory. We are happy to announce that Bedouin Beats will be continuing our classes online going forward! With fitness facilities not being able to open until Stage 3, which has no set time, there is no knowing when we would be able to share a space. Once AHS deems it safe for us to gather, we will likely look for a space to dance together again. This is not the end of “your happy place,” it is simply moving online and then, hopefully, to another place where our community can build new memories.
These are unprecedented times which are calling for unprecedented measures. For now, myself and our amazing team of instructors will keep the Bedouin Beats name alive online. Globally. We are so grateful for your continued support and your patience as we transition through this change.
Please keep an eye on our page for details about upcoming Summer 2020 classes and workshops, as well as discounts and sales on store items.
Stay safe and 6 feet apart 💕
